More Interested In Apple's iPhone SE Or Tesla's Model 3?


Two big product announcements were due out today. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL)'s iPhone SE was made available for pick-up and delivery, while Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA)'s Model 3 will be unveiled at 11:30 p.m. ET.

Which are you more interested? If our Twitter poll is any indication, Elon Musk will be very happy. Seventy-nine percent of respondents said they were more interested in the Model 3 event. This may not be too surprising, as the iPhone SE was unveiled earlier this month.
